Updated May 6: The City’s Neighborhood Street Paving Program continues with Continental Paving, Inc. as the City’s paving contractor for this year. Sidewalk paving and driveway tie-ins are complete on Foster Street, Granite Avenue, Curtice Avenue, and Prospect Street. Final pavement overlay for these streets was completed on Thursday, May 5.
Work started on Friday, May 6 to lower covers on South Street from Pleasant Street to Downing Street in anticipation of reclaiming this section next week. Next week will also include the installation of some catch basins and drain lines for the new bump outs that City Council approved earlier this year on this section of South Street. Southbound traffic will flow through the work zone with no detours. Northbound traffic will be detoured east on Downing St. and north on S. State St. to Pleasant St.
Work is weather permitting. Streets may be reduced to one lane or closed to through traffic. Parking will be prohibited on these streets between 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Residents will have road access to their homes. Find more information and a tentative schedule of streets approved for paving at www.concordnh.gov/pavingplan.
Neighborhood streets have a life expectancy of 25-30 years, so the paving program is based on a 30-year paving cycle with consideration of pavement conditions. The City conducts an assessment of road conditions every 2 years to prioritize paving for streets that are in need of repair. Roads are scheduled for paving based on priority and available funding.
Residents that have a concern or paving request for a particular street can submit a request at www.concordnh.gov/seeclickfix or on the MyConcordNH app.
